International Federation of Aromatherapists 35th Anniversary
Clinical Aromatherapy Research Symposium and Trade Show
17th October 2020

St. Luke’s in The Avenue, Kew, Richmond, Surrey TW9 2AJ

The IFA Clinical Aromatherapy Research Symposium to mark our 35th Anniversary promises to be the event of 2020 in the aromatherapy industry bringing together lead professionals to provide attendees with the very latest in international research in a variety of subjects. Attendees will listen to motivating and inspiring talks and gain invaluable knowledge transferable to their own practice. The theme of our conference ‘Clinical Aromatherapy Research’ was chosen because ancient history has provided anecdotal evidence of the therapeutic use of essential oils but, in the last few decades, increasing scientific research has evidenced and substantiated their health benefits. The objective evidence base which supports aromatherapy comprises clinical trials, case histories, clinical audits and also patient reported outcome data. The amount of such research, and the media profile of some studies, has led to a high level of public confidence in the efficacy of aromatherapy, especially in the areas of mental health, back pain, cancer and palliative care, which our conference intends to draw upon. Additional benefits include: 

  • Opportunity to meet authoritative figures in the field and ask the experts any questions you may have; 
  • Book signings;
  • Networking with colleagues;
  • Buffet lunch is included free of charge;
  • Join us as we toast our 35th Anniversary;
  • Stock up on a choice of quality natural and organic products; 
  • Sample the latest brands in the market with a free goody bag for every attendee;
  • 6 CPD points awarded for attendance.
